The New York Yankees are known for going out and getting studs for the big bucks. And this philosophy worked very nicely for the Bombers in the 2010 season but they do tend to lose out on trades. What I always here as a Yankee fan is how great somebody like once top prospects Austin Jackson and Tyler Clippard are doing down in Scranton or Trenton. But now the bombers are getting bitten right in their rear end as former top prospects are making very great progress in the Big Leagues. Of course there are exceptions such as Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes and Francisco Cervelli who were too good to trade for an older player. But what I am trying to get at is that right now the Yankees cold use a fast and young stallion in the outfield like Austin Jackson who they traded for now injured Center fielder Curtis Granderson. Just a little side note the other player traded to Detroit in what seemed to be a “Blockbuster” move was a man by the name of Phil Coke… bring back any memories??? (Blowing a lead, giving up the big hit to the Nation or even being as careless as a man on road rage with his pitches) But now as I once predicted Coke has turned the corner that separates a man from a child… AN ERA UNDER 3.00. Another highly talented prospect that never got the chance to make magic while dawning the pinstripes and has made magic in another place. Jose Tabata who was basically the biggest or most important piece from a Pittsburgh prospective when they sent OF Xavier Nady (Now in Chicago) and LHP Damaso Marte to the Yanks. Tabata is currently the prize possession of a very well constructed pirates minor league system. In 35 games played in class AAA Indianapolis Tabata is hitting a staggering .331 with 15 RBI’s and 19 bags swiped Tabata will definitely help the future of the cheapest franchise in the Majors. Although the Bombers have traded away some significant players they do have some young talent currently in their system. Players include star Catching prospects Jesus Montero and Austin Romine who are both incredible with their bats and their athletic abilities. Two other players of interest down on the farm are outfielders Slade Heathcott who was the 1st round choice of the bombers in 09 and Greg Golsen who has already had a taste of the Bigs and will be called up really soon. The Yankees also have a loaded arsenal of Pitchers like RHP Arodys Vizcaino who BaseballAmerica has as the future 4th starter in the rotation by 2012. Overall the Yankees are good to go with their future….That is if they can keep their cattle in the farm!!!! Until next time I’m out!!!!!!
